A former top official at B.C.'s regulator for car sales has been removed from her positions on two provincial boards after a judge ruled she had misrepresented herself as a lawyer for years.

Loraine Lee, formerly the chief operating officer for the Vehicle Sales Authority (VSA), no longer sits on the Mental Health Review Board or the Passenger Transportation Board, B.C.'s Ministry of the Attorney General confirmed Monday.

"By misrepresenting herself as a practising lawyer and member of the Law Society of British Columbia, her actions risk harming the public's confidence in these boards. As such, the ministry made the decision to rescind her appointments," a ministry spokesperson wrote in an email to CBC News.

In October, a B.C. Supreme Court justice handed down an order permanently prohibiting Lee from acting as a lawyer, giving legal advice or characterizing herself as qualified to practise law.

Head of B.C.'s car sales regulator admits he wrongly believed his deputy was a practising lawyer (Greg: Why is it these highly paid by taxpayers BC govt mandarins not able to vet a resume?
https://groups.google.com/g/van.general/c/esZvmu4o0AM we recently had the case of the phony nurse at BC Women's Hospital Brigitte Cleroux, 49. How hard is it to check and vet a resume? I once saw a stupid immigrant named Michael Yardley unable to hold a regular time clock job online claiming to be a real estate agent that seemed ludicrous so I contacted the real estate board and they confirmed he was not a realtor. These govt workers allowing these fakes to have employment takes employment away from others who are better qualified are they incompetent/ bribed/sexual favours? They should be named and sanctioned yes perhaps even fired.)

The order came in response to a petition from the Law Society of B.C., which stated that Lee had presented herself repeatedly as a lawyer during her time at the VSA and in her roles on the two boards.

According to the law society, Lee was a member of the bar for about seven months beginning in June of 1987.

The VSA oversees the sale of cars and trucks for personal use in B.C., licensing dealerships and salespeople, handling complaints and issuing penalties to dealers who break the law.

2 top executives out at B.C. car sales regulator following allegations by law society
The law society's petition stems from information provided by a member of the public who began looking into the agency's leadership after becoming concerned about how it dealt with his complaint against a car dealer who is also a member of the VSA board.(Greg: Way to go member of the public you made your beef someone elses beef and the job got done. Way to go! Hope the original complaint was rectified.)

Lee left her role with the VSA in July, about two months after the petition was filed, as did former president and CEO Stephen Simms.

https://opengovca.com/surrey-property/018-660-002 Don't know why he is embarressed the place is assessed at $1.2 million which is decent.

I was once involuntary commited to SMH psychiatric for a week when Hurricane Katrina was happening the food and juice was decent there was two colour tvs and the prescriptions they gave me were an improvement but the fact that a chronic liar like Lorraine Lee was allowed to sit on the Mental Health Review Board really gets under my skin. How much was she paid for that and the Passenger Board appointments? Who was passed over so that she could have these appointments?
